Chelsea have won their last four league matches and face relegation-threatened Huddersfield Town and mid-table Newcastle United in their final fixtures.
The win against Liverpool as well as Tottenham’s loss to West Brom has opened the race for top four, and Antonio Conte believes there is hope for Chelsea.
“One month ago, it was impossible to imagine we’d arrive at the end to fight for a place in the Champions League,” Conte told reporters.
“Now there is hope.
“We are getting three points in every game. Our opponents are dropping points, but our future is not in our hands. We have to try to get three points to put pressure on the teams ahead of us.
“We must be pleased with our will to fight and desire, and our will to keep the hope alive to take a place in the Champions League.”
